I'm doing a little better now - I'm more like clinging on the edge of the raft with chattering teeth Leo rather than drowning Drowning Corpsey Leo (Titanic, people!!!).
Also - News! I have a friend!
Some guy sat next to me in the tute (I didn't see my mature aged lady up the front) and we had to do the questions on pairs. Once he announced that Economics was his favourite course
Nayways, I can't remember his name but he's wearing a red shirt. Luckily he looks a fair bit like The Hun's sisters boyf (tall) so I should be able to pick him out. He's also doing marketing and is in a tute straight after the lecture too, so I may be in that class too. But then it raises the issue that if I get in the class and he's there first, is it too stalkerish/wrong impression to sit next to him? If I do, is that like crowding someone? If I don't, will there be that awkward issue where depending on the class it depends to what to degree of 'hi' I give? And what about lectures?! We talked about work and stuff (he's part time as well) and finished with a 'see you next week!' and he gave half a 'it was nice to....', so it seems to be more than jus the usual polite 'godamnit, why do I have to work with this person - I can't wait till the tute is over' that I occassionally get (and are on the other end of). Hmm, I was also kinda friendly with the girl sitting on my left (who I had orignally planned to work with) so mebbe if everyone sits in the same place I can get to know her a little better too and decrease my social retardation...
I need to get back to work where you have no choice over who you talk to/sit with/work with and can relax!!!
